  • Really awesooooome episode totally worth it

    I like this episode alot it was really funny but I dont like the time slot they put it in( I'm lucky I got to see it twice at 3:00 in the morning without an alarm clock and at 6:30 with alarm clock). I enjoyed this episode...the reason that I didnt give it a 10.0 was because on the second half Frida didnt show and the main characters didnt show much thats what I didnt like the second half so much...but anyways keep it up El Tigre because that was totally awesome!!!!!for realz the first half was cool it seemed like they did more things than any other ussuall episode...I am honestly happy that El Tigre came back WOOOOOO.moreless

      El Tigre: No dad. I know nothing can replace Senior Chapi.
      Grandpapi: (Crying) Why? WHY!?!
      El Tigre: But let me prove to you I can make this right. I'll pay you back for all this damage.
      Rodolfo: And how do you expect to do that?
